Hi, I'm planning my trip to New Zealand for Jan.04. Can you tell me if 2 weeks is enough
time to see the south and north island.  What's the transportation like? Any info would be
very appriciated, thanks.

Two weeks is a bit short to fully enjoy both islands, but it's feasible to get at least a
good first impression of the highlights and differences between both.

You'll want to carefully plan your trip, though, especially with regard to travel
arrangement. Lucky for you transportation is quite good in most "frequented" places, and
you'll find travel passes etc. available from different companies.

Better check with a travel site or agent though :)

I spent three weeks in july just on the south island! i still didn't see everything i had
planned.  nz is just the easiest place i've ever been by myself.  i rented a car in
nelson, planned an itinerary by using a bus tour that i picked up from a travel agent in
takaka and set off. the travel stops with the little "i" are the best resource and i used
them alot.  the people are fantastic and gave me lots of leads on where to go and stay.  i
recommend a car, but i'm older and like to set my own schedule...there are busses and
trains, of course.  just go and have a ball!

I too am leaving for NZ this weekend Dec. 7 and only have 2 weeks. I plan to do some
landscape photography and some backpacking. I am getting the feeling 2 weeks is too short
so I think I will make this my first trip to see alot and to see what I like. I am flying
into Queenstown and plan to find my way back to Auckland. I am looking for a small town to
maybe one day open an art gallery. Can you reccommend some small tourist towns that might
fit the bill? Thanks  Michael   www.americanlotus.com
